When you graduate no one will care about your A level results ever again. Ask graduates that you know!

I've heard this alot but as I've looked investment banking I've seen people mentioning that for FO roles and graduate schemes and things that firms often require a minimum number of ucas points???

Why you so desperate to go into banking? I’ll show you a graph on how banks take on academics.

I've taken part in a couple stock and investment challenges at my local uni and thoroughly enjoyed them with a passion and have always had a natural aptitude towards business and economics. They always say do something u enjoy for work and this sort of area is where I see enjoyment. Btw sorry but I can barely read the graph

Keep your options open, there’s a lot of great career paths outside of banking. Truth is most leave banking within the first couple of years and go into private equity to make more money. Also you can just study management on its own at Warwick, doesn’t have to be management with marketing or finance- won’t make a difference to your application. A lot go into banking with completely irrelevant degree like music, and a lot with chemistry, biology, history etc.

When you graduate with a first or a 2.1? Not very likely! Most firms will see the sense in employing this type of graduate who has excellent references from his/ her uni.

No one cares about your A levels of GCSEs. Just your degree and classification. Eventually it would just be ‘which university did you go to’. They won’t even ask your grade.

Yes. Your A levels will be out of date by the time you graduate from uni! Who would seriously care what your A level grades were in chemistry if you graduate with a 2.1 chemistry degree? or you graduated in dentistry or medicine and a range of many subjects?

Investment banks require a minimum A-level grade threshold to get springs, internships, grad jobs etc so yeah they do care- once you've broken into banking then yeah they won't care

So would u advise on resitting whilst I explore my options and improve my grades by actually revising or just going to my foundation at Warwick and completing my bsc in management

you know banking has nothing to do with stock pitching or investing right? as a stepping stone it could help lead to that stuff but sellside research or buyside research at an AM would be far better first bets.
